The Fact News Service,
A man paid Rs 18,000 for a flight ticket and traveled as the only passenger on board an Emirates flight from Mumbai to Dubai on May 19. Bhavesh Javeri, who has boarded over 240 flights between Mumbai and Dubai so far, added, “I have flown so much, but this is the best flight ever.”On the flight, meanwhile, Bhavesh Javeri had a great time conversing with the crew as well as the commander, who also offered to give him a tour of the entire plane. Since 18 is his lucky number, Bhavesh Javeri got the specific seat that he had asked for, much to his delight.
The novelty kept on coming through the flight in the form of the familiar inflight public address, delivered with a personal touch. Javeri, please fasten your seat belt. Javeri, we are preparing to land.’ After we landed, I walked out leisurely and picked up my bag, the only one lying next to a conveyor belt,” Bhavesh Javeri, who has been a resident of Dubai for the past 20 years. Bhavesh Javeri has a Golden visa and had purchased the Rs 18,000 economy class ticket after making a call to the airline one week prior to the scheduled date of his departure.
“I normally book a business class ticket, but I thought, why not book an economy seat, the flight would have only a few passengers.”After he reached the airport, Bhavesh Javeri was denied entry into the terminal building by the CISF personnel as his ticket didn’t have a date. Immediately, Bhavesh dialed Emirates and was told that the staff was waiting for him as he was the only passenger onboard flight EK501.
